ASTRONOMY EDUCATIONAL TOURS
WHAT IS AN EDUCATIONAL TOUR?
Educational tours are a form of active, rather than passive based learning. It exposes students to the outside world, inducing all their five senses and giving them the opportunity to explore beyond the four walls of the classroom. By having to experience the activities for themselves, students ask questions and adopt an active learning approach. Needless to say, students learn better and are more receptive towards learning.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF ANY PLANNED EDUCATIONAL TOUR ARE AS UNDER :-
- To broaden the students horizon & global cultural awareness through interaction with the professional experts.
- To give students an opportunity to relate the class room learning to the real world situation.
- Supplement classroom academic programme with field visits & career focused itinerary.
- To provide an opportunity to the students to identify and exploit the Internship/Summer School viability being provided by the country being visited.
